Welcome to Starburst Herefords and Cowlair Kennels Rough Collies

Starburst Herefords is in Scotland, UK, where we have recently downsized from an arable organic farm to a small retirement farm only 3 miles from the beautiful north sea coast of New Aberdour and 8 miles from the well known fishing port of  Fraserburgh with it’s stunning sand dunes,  and the very first lighthouse in Scotland, in Aberdeenshire.  We are about a 40 minute drive to the now famous Donald Trump golf course, just outside Aberdeen.

Cowlair,  houses our Pedigree herd of standard Polled Herefords, along side a much scaled down in size, commercial beef suckler herd predominently Shorthorn, Hereford crosses. We no longer have our Miniature Hereford cattle in Scotland or Canada, but we do maintain a large frozen semen bank of their genetics in Canada in a government approved facility.

We are a small herd, however, we are using a wide diversity of champion bloodlines from around the world to produce quality Herefords for herd improvement and offer bulls for sale yearly.

We have added a beautiful well bred Registered Rough Collie female to the mix. She is in active training as a cattle dog. We  have had our first litter of pups and are pleased to say that they have all gone to homes in Scotland.  We have retained one of Rosie’s daughters  ~ Cowlair Scarlet Ribbon~.  Scarlet will be encouraged to begin working cattle as we help promote the lovely kind gentle nature of this loyal, old established breed..

Visitors are always welcome
